The birth of Learn to Trade
Having worked in the foreign exchange department of a large bank, Greg experienced boredom due to the routine nature of the job. When he moved back to the United Kingdom, he was able to focus on his trading more, and an idea occurred to him that he could teach people how to trade. Thus, Learn to Trade came to life.
